Best of Boston

2013 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, Martha's Vineyard


You can’t see the ocean from Detente, but once you taste the food here, you won’t care about the landlocked location. Don’t miss the “boarchetta,” a creative take on porchetta that involves boar belly and sweet cherries. Also unforgettable: locally caught tautog with cavatelli, crab, and a light cod bisque.
